working to build this campaign because they believe in barack obama and his message and the policy he moved forward -- to move this country forward. that is what won in this election. across battleground states, we are currently sitting at 50.4. i think we will get a little better than president bush's margin in the 2004 election. our margin over republicans declined about 3.7% compared to 2008. 5.3 in non battleground states. millions of ballots are still being counted, 4 million in california alone. sometime today we think we will be officially the winner in florida. as of right now, total turnout and number of voters has increased in colorado, iowa, minnesota, nevada, north carolina, and wisconsin. it looks like it decreased in 35 of 49 battleground states. the total turnout may be higher in 2008 when all the votes are finally counted. as we planned for, total minority vote share increased to 28%. our coalition turnout, women made up about the same percent of the electorate as in 2008. we got 65% of women voters. for lots of reporting about youth turnout, they continue to turn out

reasons. the first, president obama comes to ohio and likes to take credit for getting our state back on track. but we know that's not true. it's the work that the governor and i have done with all of you to balance our budget and get our state back on track. we didn't raise taxes, we cut taxes. [applause] here is my second reason and this one is personal for me. my youngest son is 18-year-old and he voted for the first time this year in a presidential election. a couple of weeks ago before a friday night football game his friend were at our house and they were in his room and i decided i wonder when they're talking about, girls, the football game t next concert they're going to go to, maybe kid rock. but i went upstairs and i was listening outside the door and they didn't know i was there. they were talking about this election because they know their future is is riding on four more days. if i could talk to the women in the audience. and i see there are just a few women here tonight. you know the democrats have talked a lot lately about this war on women. let me tell you what i think

if the obama did not view this as europeanizing the government. using judges and regulators to impose its will on subjects ranging from same-sex marriage in all 50 states to green curbing of the upsurge of fossil fuels through such methods as hydraulic fracturing. for darker the galling is the defeat of every republican challenger for the u.s. senate coupled with a democratic victory in 25 out of a possible 33 races. hanging on to the house by a slightly reduced margin will be a slightly reduced margin for those of us to vote for repeal of obama care and entitlement reform. republicans have now lost four out of the past six presidential elections, and five of the past six in terms of the popular vote. this followed three landslide victories in the era of ronald reagan that dominated the politics of the nation in the world. if this is not the time to recreate an integrated across the board conservative politics to counter the relentless and successful assault by reinvigorated american left, it is hard to imagine when such a time would come. >> thank you. president susan b. anthony list. to

they were. >> well, i mean, in the end, obama won by a little more than the polls anticipated. more likely he produced an electorate. whoever won, we would wake up on election day and produce a little different electorate than anticipated. that is what happened. the electorate was more non- white than most polls anticipated. there was that. the debate had a huge impact. the first debate fundamentally changed the race and put romney back with and range. obama was able to stabilize at the end. but romney presented himself as an acceptable alternative. romney was able to walk over the threshold. in the end, he never addressed the demographic challenge. and the third debate he went back on some of the language. he talked about amnesty and deportation and basically ensured that number among hispanics. barack obama increased its share of votes among hispanics. that is a statement more about the republican party than the democratic party. >> that is not two waves. one was out of the democratic convention. that was a surge for the democrats. the second was a chance for the challenger to put himsel

and regulation, he has a million more americans at work today than obama does. i would rather have his recovery and all the revenue that flows from that. if you grew 4% a year instead of 2%. the difference between growing from 4% instead of 2% is $5 trillion in additional revenue to the federal government. nobody is talking but raising taxes $5 trillion. why not focus to reduce rates, have lower taxes, it to get more growth. you actually net more additional revenue. >> it seems like john boehner is now willing to get that revenue not just from the economic growth that is not scored by the congressional budget office but through eliminating loopholes and deductions in a way that is revenue positive, not neutral which is what the pledge and has to be. >> they took his willingness to have revenues from growth. they said now he has agreed to tax increases. they blow up the negotiations. they did not hear very well. what happens now? i think that obama is very focused on his reelection. i do not think he looks around the country and notices that 30 states have republican governors. he has been a tre

to be one of them. this week, i offered congratulations to president obama -- along with an alternative to sending our economy over any part of the fiscal cliff. instead of raising tax rates on the american people and accepting the damage it will do to our economy, let's start to actually solve the problem. let's focus on tax reform that closes special interest loopholes and lowers tax rates. instead of accepting arbitrary cuts that will endanger our national defense, let's get serious about shoring up the entitlement programs that are the primary drivers of our country's massive, growing debt. 2013 should be the year to begin to solve our debt through tax reform and entitlement reform. together, we should avert the fiscal cliff in a manner that ensures that 2013 finally is that year. shoring up entitlements and reforming the tax code -- closing special interest loopholes and deductions, and moving to a fairer, cleaner, and simpler system -- will bring jobs home and result in a stronger, healthier economy. a stronger economy means more revenue -- which is exactly what the president is s
